Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Clean effective travel"
Cons: "Space space space. Uncomfortable seating for long flight."
Pros: "The taste of the food was delicious."
Cons: "I’d have liked larger portion sizes as I was still a little hungry after each meal and snack."
Cons: "I upgraded to first class in order to have a couple adult beverages but the flight attendant decided to hide and eat her meal before serving the passengers. We were more then Hal way before she made her rounds with drinks. Not a pleasant experience at all."
Pros: "The food was remarkably good for a US airline. The wine was good as well. I found enough video material to entertain me throughout the long flight, although I would have liked a decent classical music program."
Cons: "I had to ask for a pillow and when I did not take the blanket becaue it was comfortable I had made a mistake. It was VERY chilly in the last third of the flight and there was no way to locate personnel, or even a call button in the darkened plane to ask for one.Finally I climbed up on my seat (short people cannot reach the overhead bins on this plane) to get my coat out of the overhead bin and passed the last hours bundled up in that. While water was passed out frequently, collecting cups and bottles, not to mention the remnants of the snack or meals was not high on the priority list and eventually we were sitting in a trash pile. Bravo for having luggage available as soon as we got through customs!"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, flight attendants were responsive and attentive."
Cons: "Had to wait over 20 minutes to check in. Right before boarding i was forced to pay $25 to check in my handbag otherwise i was not going to be able to board."
Cons: "the person helping me couldn't understand her and she was aggressive and charged me too much and wouldn't make adjustments about it."
Cons: "1st Delay due to baggage and mechanical issues. Then taxied out only to be pulled back to the gate due to an issue with how they loaded the baggage. 2 1/2 hours total causing me and many others to miss connecting flights."
Pros: "Gate agent was sincere and professional."
Cons: "Aircraft cabin temperature far to warm and uncomfortable."
Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Cons: "They mentioned that the flight might be rough. It was not. I thought they might would offer us a to-go snack. They did not. Silly, I know, but I love air plane snacks!"
Cons: "A 3-hour weather delay was discouraging because it happened incrementally over 7 or 8 different announcements--each time getting later. One or two would have been reasonable. The seats are tiny and there isn't really enough leg room even for me at just 5'5" tall."
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Pros: "Orderly boarding seat nice crew good"
Cons: "Snacks in first class were lame"

Pros: "Very puntual"

Pros: "I was extremely late getting to the airport due to traffic accidents. The crew held the door open for me after security let them know I was there. I am truly thankfull!"
Pros: "I liked the ticket counter person who helped straighten things out. When I arrived"
Cons: "When I arrived st 3:30am I found out that the first leg my flight had changed. The ticket person convinced the person she spoke with on the phone to confirm the change and not make me call the 3rd artsy booker. Unfortunately, I lost the seats that I had paid extra money to book. Everyone wants to blame everyone else!"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty decent for both dinner and breakfast that was served. There was also a wide variety of movies/tv/music to listen to on your personal tv."

Cons: "Delayed and messed up all of my plans"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
Pros: "Had no problems!"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and very tight."
Pros: "Didn't. We're very uncomfortable - no leg room and little recline. Makes one consider anything other than airplane transit"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed, causing me to miss my connecting flight. I was put on a standby list for flights to my destination as well as to any cities around it with connecting flights. Every flight was over sold and they were unable to get me on any flights until Tuesday... My original flight was Sunday morning. I was among 26 others on this standby list. United customer service told me to wait at the airport until my flight because they wouldn't be able to help me with a hotel. Less than satisfied and annoyed that I have to miss two days of work on top of having to stay in San Francisco for two nights."
